Canada vs Norway at the Men's World Curling Championships. The event was one of the reasons we came to Beijing in the first place.
The Beijing Zoo was just down the road from where the curling was taking place. The Giant Pandas were the highlight.
Zizhuyuan Park was just across the street from our first hotel.
After the curling we joined a group tour of China. One of our first sites we visited was Tian'anmen Square.
A lot of Chinese have never seen Westerners. We were asked a number of times (through gestures, of course) to pose in pictures with them.
Here's my turn.
The Forbidden City.
The Temple of Heaven.
The Sacred Way of the Ming Tombs.
The Great Wall of China.
A Buddhist Temple, as seen from the gardens of the Summer Palace.
The Terracotta Warriors, the highlight in the city.
A Chinese cultural show that our group attended.
